     In this four-part documentary series, comedic actor Chua Enlai embarks on a zany, international exploration of artificial intelligence. He examines A.I.’s potential to become like us and how it will transform humanity such as redefining love and relationships; expanding the boundaries of creativity and intelligence; recalibrating the international balance of power; and testing the limits of ethics, morality and spirituality. Will A.I. change us for the better or for the worse?

From Hollywood movies to front-page headlines, war veteran’s unable to transition to the home front is a well-known concept. But post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in fact hits more civilians than soldiers, and more women than men. As scientists search for an effective treatment, they’re trying to understand a question. When so many people experience the trauma of sudden loss, near-death, and violence, what makes some more vulnerable to PTSD than others?

’Bird Brain’ – it’s used as an insult. But is it? This film explores the very latest research into bird intelligence – and finds that birds may be much smarter than we’d thought. It’s not just the bird brain ’superstars’ that deserve a re-think. From garden birds, such as starlings, to waterfowl, such as geese, we’re only just beginning to uncover the surprises to be found in the minds of birds.

Big Wind is an in-depth documentary that covers the unprecedented rush to industrial wind turbine development that is transforming the landscape of the world. This film investigates why governments are spending billions of dollars on wind power without doing health and environmental studies, why citizens are being stripped of their democratic process, why children and adults are falling ill, and why families are losing their homes.

Wingsuiting is probably the activity that comes the closest to realising man’s age- old desire to fly. Participants don a jumpsuit that adds surface area to their bodies, enabling a significant increase in lift, and of the control they have over their flight. As the sport is still in its infancy, safety is hard to guarantee, and statistical information is scarce, while the publicity around fatal wingsuiting accidents has led to it being labelled ‘the most dangerous sport in the world.’
